In the Tver region, on the basis of a military transport aviation formation, scheduled training flights were carried out on Il-76 aircraft at the so-called meteorological minimum.

The crews performed flight missions in conditions of the cloud base of about 100 meters with a visibility of about two kilometers. In such conditions, pilots are forced to approach landing by instruments, not observing landmarks.

The performance of such flights is necessary to increase the level of training of the crews to perform tasks in any weather conditions at any aerodromes.

During the flights, the tasks of maintaining the level of training and combat readiness of the crews, training young pilots at a meteorological minimum, performing mandatory checks on the types of flight training, improving the qualifications of young flight personnel were worked out.
